He spent much of his youth in imaginary worlds, and left school with a good idea of how to make stuff up. He moved to the big city, learned to brew tea, and ended up as a TV editor, working on documentaries, events and concerts for bands from Iron Maiden to Coldplay. But in the darkness of the night he was still making stuff up, and his first book, The Blade Itself, was published in 2006. He now lives in Bath with his wife Lou and their three children Grace, Eve and Teddy and makes stuff up full-time.• Joe is a UK-based author and very happy to help promote the series• A UK tour is being organised to coincide with publication in JULY• The book is loosely based on Viking culture and would tie in well with the Viking exhibition at the British Museum in spring• Joe is a Sunday Times bestselling author• HALF A KING is the first book in the new trilogy.
